Motion text

That this House is concerned by reports that Tesco is targeting public houses as potential sites for development because of the particular viability of the sites including the fact that change of use planning permission would not be needed; believes that a public house should not be closed unless it has been offered to other public house operators and the community; further believes that there should be a statutory right of consultation over any public house closure and that there should be a mandatory viability test to determine whether a public house is, or could be viable; and calls on the Government to examine a range of measures to help public houses, including enshrining them and their importance to their local communities in planning law.
